Cycle of Prayer

Diocesan Prayer

As we pursue our vision of a bigger church making a bigger difference more people knowing Jesus more justice in the world we have introduced a diocesan prayer. Please pray it and share it in churches across our diocese as we offer our sustained prayer to Jesus.

Loving Father,
by your grace we long to see
more people knowing Jesus,
and more justice in your world.
Help us to live as your disciples in the power of the Spirit and to work to your praise and glory.

Deanery Prayers for the Month

Warrington Deanery
Almighty God, we your servants in this Deanery of Warrington offer ourselves to you in love and service. We thank you for your church throughout the world and we especially pray for our deanery and our diocese. Help us to deepen our faith, and to serve you in all that we do and say so that your kingdom may grow; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Wigan Deanery
Dear Lord Jesus, pour out your Spirit of Renewal on your disciples in Wigan. Guide our steps as we seek your transformation for ourselves, our churches and the communities we serve. May we glorify your name and see your kingdom grow, now and forever. Amen.

Prayer for Bishop's in Mission

Lord, lead us by your Spirit to be witnesses of the promise of Christ. Your salvation is a gift to all who come to you and accept it. Help us to go out in confidence to share your Gospel with our friends, neighbours and communities.

Help us prepare for this time of outreach and mission with our Bishops, so our church can reach and bless all those in our Parish, and be effective witnesses to our community.
